We saw the sign for "Ralia Café" from the main road and pulled in hoping for lunch, but it's not really a café. They have coffee and soup, and some packaged sandwiches but we wouldn't have stopped if we knew they didn't really have food....More

We stopped here for a coffee on the way to Strathpeffer. We had a cappuccino and a latter coffee with shortbread - both were very good. It is just off the main road and handy fro a stop off.

It's not the most palatial place but it's very welcoming and a warm place to stop off, though the toilets are not the best, but the food and drinks are simply the best. Great place to stop and just off the A9.

Stopped here on a snowy day for a hot drink and something to eat. Friendly polite staff and lovely views. Homemade sandwiches looked awesome. Will make this a regular stop on our frequent journeys between central Scotland and the far north.

Very tasty leek and tattie soup and bacon sandwiches. Surrounded by snow clad hills. Free wifi. Great walks for our dog Bonnie. Great coffee too. Ideal place to stop between Inverness and Perth

Situated in a service area just off the A9 this cafe had two home made soups on offer. Thai chicken sounded nice but I opted for the Leek and potato which did not disappoint. An additional point of note I would make is that they...More
